  1. I use Spotify. I type in a mood or activity and they pop up a song list that usually works for me. No Alexa experience, so not sure how that would work together.
  2. If it were me, I would make myself feel safe first. Which means I would unload it and leave the action open if possible. I would leave the firearm where it is and put the ammo somewhere else within the vicinity. I'm not sure whether I would mention it or not. Off to read other replies.
  3. I got a *really* cheap knock off pair at Ardene's thinking I would just wear them getting in and out of the public pool, but I really like them. I would want the real deal to hike the Great Wall, lol, but perfect for schlepping around the local grocery store
  4. I'm satisfied with our Shark Navigator.

    Yoga mat?

    Yup, I will take a thick yoga mat that's a bit bulkier to transport any day!
  6. I agree with either making a big pasta dish ahead of time or something in the slow cooker/rotisserie chicken for Saturday. For Monday, what about Greek? Buy some pita bread, make (or buy) Tzatziki and a big Greek salad, marinade and BBQ some chicken. Greek Chicken Marinade: 1/3 c. plain Greek yogurt 1/4 c. oil 1 Tbsp. lemon juice 3 cloves minced garlic 1 tsp. oregano 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper Marinade 30 min. BBQ 15 min. each side for flattened breasts.
  7. Yeah, when Iast checked there were a few posts, and when I got back to it there were three pages, and I was replying without taking the time to catch up. Sorry if my comment was confusing. Not sure what you thought I meant by that... I was obviously not being clear, so hope that makes a bit more sense! Actually, I'm not entirely sure from this post what your take is either. Like, are you saying that people on this board do look down on unskilled labour but deny it? ETA: Because I *thought* you were trying to say is that there is nothing wrong with being called unskilled and people should just get over it. But read this definition: "An unskilled worker is an employee who does not use reasoning or intellectual abilities in their line of work. These workers are typically found in positions that involve manual labor such as packager, assembler, or apprentice, or farm worker." Then tell me an apprentice or farm worker who doesn't use reasoning or intellectual ability? The people who make up these definitions have clearly never done these jobs, and it *is* a pretty presumptuous and insulting definition.
  8. Looks like this thread got away from me, but I'll comment anyway: from what I observe it appears that raising minimum wage is another form of inflation. Employer costs go up, they raise their prices, everything goes up and the new minimum wage is negated by the new cost-to-income ratio.
  9. Here is the exact quote: Sometimes pay has to do with skill (successful lawyers, brain surgeons), sometimes pay has to do with risk, difficulty, willingness (septic tank cleaners). Cleaning other people's toilets is not usually a desirable job, which raises its value.
  10. I read this article a couple of years ago. My newer pyrex measuring cup (with lower case letters) has all the numbers worn off and is pretty useless. My older pyrex measuring cup (with upper case letters) is still perfectly legible.
  11. Love hazelnuts and pecans. Not so much cashews... I would pick those out.
  12. Your body is going to wear out, whether it is from being sedentary or whether from overuse. Avoid either extreme, for sure, but IMO there is no optimal plan to avoid aging. Typed as she headed out for a walk and then a Yoga session on YouTube to keep herself in some sort of shape as long as possible
  13. Used to be doughnuts. Then Miss Vickie's Salt & Vinegar chips until my tongue had sores. I've literally hurt myself eating fresh homemade pico de gallo. Garlic toast. Balsamic anything. Homemade bread, buns, cookies.
  14. I have the same problem. The law in Canada used to be keep the previous seven years' tax records, and now I believe it's keep the previous six years. This year I noticed I have the previous eight years and did not do anything about it. 😳 I do usually pull apart the tax return as it is getting destroyed and keep anything I think is important which is vastly less than what is there. It is always hard.
